Episode Quotes
Debbie: And then there's Dick. You're the smartest.
Dick: True.
Debbie: The most responsible.
Dick: Check.
Debbie: The most likely to rat out your fellow children.
Dick: Max steals.
Debbie: Not yet.
Dick: Excellent choice, Deborah. I've been chomping at the bit to get this place in shape.

Reggie: What are you doing?
Amber: What?
Reggie: You always do this, Amber. I get closer to Giselle, you get closer to me. I start to have feelings for you again, you pull away, I get hurt. So I'm going to tell my girlfriend who I really am, unless you have something new to say. Because if you do, you should say it now.
visual: Amber stares back mutely.
Reggie: That's what I thought.

Marty: Wait a second, Larry. Can you count cards?
Larry: Of course not.
Marty: Oh, yeah, what am I saying?
Larry: I can see through them.

Marty: We're gonna do one bet, Larry. $5,000, then we walk away. Larry, $5,000 is a lot of money for us. I cannot lose.
Larry: Marty, I can see through the cards. I like your odds.

Larry: My goodness gracious me, you seem genuinely upset. I thought you were joking about the $5,000 being a lot of money. How poor are you?
Marty: Larry, I think I have to kill you.

Jackie: (to Larry) 472 years ago, I met you on opposing sides of an intergalactic battlefield. And when you won and started mutilating all of my fellow freedom fighters, I knew that...
Debbie: Jackie. Jackie. People are starting to look, so let's just move it along, okay?

Jackie: I stole it from housekeeping. A maid of honor should look like a real maid.
Debbie: Awesome.

Larry: (to his father) I'm not going back, and neither is my family. We like it here.
Abby: Really? 'Cause all you do is piss and moan about how much you hate it here.



Cultural References
Marty: And no parties. I've seen "The Hangover."
Amber: Great reference, Dad. It's very relevant.

The Hangover is 2009 comedy about friends who travel to Las Vegas for a bachelor party, not relevant at all to the Weavers' scenario.

Grandfather: Now how do you get this damn thing to work?
Commander Bill: What? Are we gonna "beam" something somewhere? (chuckles)
Grandfather: Perhaps you'd like to watch a bunch of Teddy bears dance in a tree, hmm?

Commander Bill's referernce to "beaming" refers to actor George Takei's long running role on Star Trek. Grandfather's reference to Teddy bears refers to the Ewok's appearance in the Star Wars films that Mark Hamill starred in.
